    Maximus VII Hero install latest BIOS? (Version 2601)

    I'm running a i7 4790k (H100i GTX), Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3-1866 CL9, EVGA GeForce GTX 980 FTW on a 256GB Samsung 850 Pro. Windows 8.1 64bit. Do I need to install all the hot fixes and utilities etc.? I just want to install what I need.

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    I have similar system specs as yours and running 2301 was just fine for me. I still updated my BIOS but it won't bring any great changes unless you aim as changing your CPU.

    Refer to change log.

    I downloaded BiOS from the website, unpacked it to FAT32 usb flash drive [full format], and used EZ Flash 2, job done, just remember, it will scrap all Your profiles, even autoupdater doesn't see this update.

    Both ez flash in the bios and ez update in ai suite 3 work great for me when updating my bios. If you've witnessed instability in your windows build I would just stick to ez flash to play it safe.

    Yes I agree, update the bios before you install windows to minimize the chances of any problems.
